    Montefiore in Hove - David Redfern. I guess MIS is probably less painful no?

    Hi I had full bunion surgery on both feet, break shave and screws. I had original badges going removed and smaller less bulky ones replaced for another 2 weeks. Every day is a better day now. Just be patient I am sure it's all worth it! Good luck to you both

    I had surgery on both feet in 2004, 3 months apart. I believe you should just try to relax and not hurry healing. You need to give it time otherwise you might damage the soft tissue and have to get repairs, plus you will have pain. Just put some pillows under your knees and keep ice on and off every 20 minutes. get some books or watch TV and get ready to just let the healing begin. I put Lavender oil on my stitches/or rather around it several times a day. Google Lavender oil, you will amazed at how it heals. I also (still) put Eucalyptus oil on tops and bottoms of my feet and layer with peppermint. It is so soothing. Good luck, you can't hurry this healing.

    Hi I had MIS bunion surgery on both feet 4 and a half weeks ago. When the bandages were removed after one week, I had large plasters put o to cover the wounds. Now have no dressings over wounds, just tape around toes. Getting around much better now. Looking forward to not having to wear the glamorous shoes but also a bit nervous about this!
